Awesome Harvest Apple Crisp!

It heralds the flavors of Fall cooking. It sets your mind on all those wonderful desserts you'll eat this holiday season. (If you haven't started eating them already.) This recipe is so quick to throw together with no fuss. You could make it a day ahead, but you would have to hide it from your family.

Do not leave this dessert unsupervised before serving, the crunchy topping will start to disappear. If you see holes in the corners of the dessert, check the corners of your husband's lips. OH! And be sure to have vanilla ice cream on hand, it tastes great melting next to this warm dessert.

6 large apples, peeled, cored, sliced 1/2 inch wedges
1 cup dark brown sugar
3/4 cup flour
1 cup oats
1 stick unsalted butter
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Arrange apples in greased 13×9x2 dish. Mix remaining ingredients; sprinkle over apples. Bake until apples are tender, about 30 minutes. It's that simple!
This apple crisp is already awesome. However, next time I'll try toasting the oats, along with chopped pecans, in the oven and mix them into the topping.
